According to UnitingCare Ageing, the film’s success in the People’s Choice Award reveals that the community wants to learn more about dementia.
‘Finding the Why’ was filmed at UnitingCare Ageing’s Starrett Lodge at Hamlyn Terrace on the NSW Central Coast.
The 16 minute film presents a fresh perspective on aged care, highlighting the positive effects of person centred care, and looks specifically at Starrett Lodge’s approach to enabling active participation in life in aged care.
It captures the essence of giving real meaning and purpose to life for those living with dementia.
‘Finding the Why’, directed and co-produced by Corinne Maunder, of Fire Films Australia, also won an International Health Short Film Festival award last year.
‘Finding the Why’ has now reached thousands of people, and has even led to Starrett Lodge featuring on the SBS Insight special ‘Dancing with Dementia’.
